Welcome to Walker Community!

Located in the Bradshaw Mountains, south of Prescott, AZ, Walker Community is an old mining district, filled with history. It’s named after Joseph Walker, mountain man, explorer, and guide. He led a party to this valley to discover gold in the summer of 1863.

Today, the valley is filled with rustic cabins and elegant homes. There’s a vibrant community of people here, with an active social calendar. Some live here full-time, while others have second homes here.

Everyone loves it here. The community is great, with pancake breakfasts and other social events.

Internet is best by https://www.walkerwifi.com/. They are solid and dependable, with fast speeds and no data limits. Cell phone is best through “Call by WiFi” on your phone, through your personal router connected to Walker WiFi. Verizon does the best straight cell service, but it’s dicey. The higher you go, the better cell reception you get. TV is by satellite or streaming Internet. We have DirectTV. We are unincorporated, so the building department is through the county, not Prescott city. Water is from wells or hauled water. Wells can be private or shared by multiple parcels. There are a few companies that haul water, and a few more that drill and maintain wells. The higher the parcel, the better the view, and the farther you have to drill for water, and the more you pay for the well. Everything is on septic. Make sure you get a permit from the county, which will mandate set backs and other stuff. Trash collection is dumpsters at the fire station. You pay a yearly fee for the combination to the locks to dump your trash. http://walkertrashcollectionservice.com/ Mail delivery is at group mailboxes around the area. FedEx and UPS deliver to your door in most places out here. We personally have a PO Box in town for important stuff. That’s a personal preference. Here’s a list of people that provide services in Walker: https://www.walkercommunity.com/walker-information/ Here’s a list of all of the property for sale in Walker, houses and land, although you can filter that. https://www.walkercommunity.com/walker-real-estate-search/

ADEQ Water and Soil Test Results Near Walker, Ariz., Show No Imminent Threat to Public Health

Looks like we’re all good.

I wouldn’t plan on drinking water from the ground, but we’re not all going to die from driving by.

It’s rust.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) surface water and soil test results of orange water and soil in the area surrounding the former Sheldon Mine in Walker, Arizona, indicate the orange coloration is due to naturally-occurring iron.

As iron is exposed to air, it forms iron oxide, which is orange or red in color. Based on the heavily mineralized geology in this former mining district, ADEQ tested the samples (surface water and soil) for metals […]

ADEQ Advises Public To Stay Away From Orange Liquid and Soil in Walker, Arizona | All About Arizona News

There are signs around Walker waning about this. They are apparently doing tests to see what it is.

I drive by the orange water every day. It’s very similar in color to the dirt nearby. We live in the forest.

ADEQ confirmed the presence of orange liquid and soils near E Sheldon Rd and S Midnight Snap Ln on Mar. 30, 2023, in response to contact from a local resident. As a precautionary measure, authorities are advising individuals to avoid contact with the orange liquid and soil until further notice. Due to recent above average precipitation in the region, this orange […]
